The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has demanded the immediate implementation of the new national minimum wage by all tiers of government.

The resolution is contained in a communiqué jointly signed by the NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, and the immediate past General Secretary Peter Ozo-Eson, after its National Executive Council, NEC meeting in Kano.

The Labour union insisted that action on the policy should be effective from the day President Muhammadu Buhari assented to the law.

They noted with dismay, the continued delay by the Federal Government and other tiers of government to implement the new national minimum wage of thirty thousand naira as recently enacted.

The new minimum wage bill, which was signed into law by the president in April this year, had been stalled over the issue of relativity and substantial adjustment of salaries in negotiations between government and labour.
